My new organization (created yesterday) is visible in my account settings:

list of organizations

but it isn't visible when viewing my profile:

github profile

Any idea why it's not showing?

You may need to declare or publicise your membership in the organisation.

  1. Go to your team/organisation profile
  2. Click on the People tab

    • The URL will be similar to: https://github.com/orgs/{foo}/people
  3. Go to the line with your profile and change Private to Public

changing visibility

The organisation will now appear on your profile and you will be listed publicly as a member when others are viewing the organisation's profile page.
